10. Neon Genesis Evangelion
Evangelion is a well-known and divisive anime that nevertheless finds itself squarely inside this list of Top 10 Best Mind Games Anime. There may be mechs, action, and world saving, but the anime is more about character development and flaws.
Whether you love it or hate it, Evangelion makes references and allusions to psychology and the human psyche, and tackles topics in a way that was unique for its time.
Ghost in the Shell has a typical complexity to its story and characters. The show tries to tackle some ethical debates and philosophical arguments, means that whilst there is a lot of action, there is actually a point to it all instead of it being just mindless violence.
This is very much an intelligent series with complexity, while there are some who won't enjoy it, I found the blend of action, mystery, philosophy and thriller to be truly excellent.
Erased hasn't been out even a year, and already it's shot up to become one of the highest ranked and rated anime. What makes it so great? A deep story that plays with time, combined with elements of mystery and suspense.
Despite the high ratings, reactions to this one seem divided right down the middle. Watch it and decide for yourself if it truly deserves a spot among the top psychological anime.
